3D Creative Conceptual Planning

For New Build & Remodel


Meet with Me First,

to Design Your Dream and then

We will Find Your Dream Builder!

This service saves time, reduces change orders

 and is VERY affordable.

I will sit down with you to creatively Interpret your Vision into a floor plan.

Then send it to our Drafting Professional to create the Construction Documents.

(Additional services and costs by an Architectural Drafter and Engineering Professional will be required

for Building Documents.)

House Plan Evaluation

Bring U​s Your Plan

Many times space planning challenges are caught by another pair of eyes.  

We are trained to catch problem areas

Change Orders = Big $ 

 Typically by the time an Interior Designer is brought in, it can be too late because the building process has started.

 Initiating a relationship using this service with KCD establishes a 

conservative approach to expenditures, 

right from the beginning.

Builder Assistance Program

The Builder’s Assistance Program is a service that helps to support the critical time tables you have and your desire to bring greater value and impress your Client.  This Program is designed to offer you three areas of assistance. We can customize services to fit the square footage needed and increase areas as desired.  Typically my services are priced per square foot, however, sometimes an hourly rate is more helpful.


• #1 Interior Design Solution & Selections

• #2 FF&E Sourcing & Specification for the Client with Designer Time to make selections

• #3 Interior 3D Visualization and Walk-Through *see explanation below 



KCD Encourages the Builder & Client with help for;

Achieving confidence that the existing drafted plans are functional, flow well and are prepared to receive the specified decorative finishes, attached fixtures, and furnishings.  Space Planning is critical to a successful floor plan.  This service is always included in service #1 but can also cross over into #2.


• More importantly, our service helps the builder to control costs such as those that come from client-driven change orders. Thus, it is more valuable to the builder, which means more bottom line comfort for your client.

Note: Project Support/Supervision During Construction is Additional.  Time Packages are available.

Note: KCD works with the Client to choose all of the FF&E and the exterior selections indicated below using the Builder’s resources.

**Interior 3D Visualization and Walk-Through includes;

All submitted to the Client and Builder

**KCD’s ability to draft exact interiors may not be possible.


This Feature of Service does not include an exterior visualization.  Without KCD creating the original plan I cannot draft an exact exterior. If the builder uses another Designer who has designed the plan using Chief Architect x10 it is possible to transfer the design file and KCD will apply interior finishes and then render the Visualization for the Client showing the complete exterior and interior.


This service does not include KCD providing Original Creative Concept Drawings/Plans or Construction Documents. That service is for Remodel and New Build Planning.
